    I have been getting a yeast infection after my husband and I have intercourse, but only when he ejaculates in side of me. I have been evaluating this for 6 months,even went and had an STD test because i thought this was strange.( everything was neg) We have been together for 9 years and this just started 1 yer ago. Each time ater he ejaculates inside me 3 days later I get a yeast infection. I have tried douching, and taking a bath right after, but i still get the infection. The infection does not come if he does not ejaculate inside of me.

    Most doctors recommend that women DO NOT douche. This can cause yeast infections. It strips away the vagina's natural bacteria, which can lead to a yeast infection. Your skin may be sensitive to the soap you are using when you take a bath. Have you had a regular GYN check up?
